St. Peter and St. Paul, West Wittering Parish Church

Some of the photos I tried to get weren't there later, so I'm really glad those of the stile were secure, and better than I had thought they would be. I was just going for documentation, but found art. Unfortunately, the shots inside the church were somehow lost. Nice Victorian stained glass, an ancient baptismal font with a newer top, a saint with a portative organ (and the church had a pipe organ, but all the pipes were in a big box and hardly showed). But the stile was the best thing. They're also here: http://sandradodd.blogspot.com/2011/05/beautiful-stile.html

A sign outside the church said "The church building dates from the 12th century, but worship has been offered to God on this site for about 1,300 years. Today this church is still the centre of a thriving worshipping community."

The sign near the stile warned of danger from rabbit holes in the field.

The gravestone on the path was of a husband and wife, and said at the bottom "In love they lived, in peace they died."
